Officials Urge Killing of Invasive Spotted Lanternfly
"If you live on the east coast of the us especially in new york or pennsylvania and see a visually striking spotted lantern fly. The state governments would like you to forget any humane ideas about carefully moving it from one spot to another and instead to immediately kill it the spotted lantern fly is an invasive pest that is not native to the us and apparently is threatening to over seventy of the plant species that feeds on feeds on meaning draining sap and leaving them weakened and vulnerable to disease among those species. Is the atlantis autism or tree of heaven which the new york times points out is best known as the tree from betty. Smith's nineteen forty-three novel. A tree grows in brooklyn but this pernicious beast who has delicate grey wings spotted in black with a bonus set of bright red wings also spotted with black underneath. I arrived in the us from asia seven years ago and entered new york city last year. During the pandemic environmentalists ecologists are encouraging people to kill the bugs site because they have no natural predators here and no organic pesticides that can take them out here. New york the department of agriculture is additionally asking people to submit the location where you found the lantern fly on their website in pennsylvania. If you're caught moving the insect from one location to another you could be fined. Abort from the destruction these little lantern flies could cause on native species. Governments are being so intense because they know that the lantern flies are quite striking. They're not the kind of bug most people would want to kill. Unlike some other invasive species like the asian longhorn beetle that caused a massive deforestation throughout new york in the late nineties. According to the new york times
Fresh update on "york times" discussed on Zero Blog Thirty
"Lot of drama and one of them supposedly might be dead and one of them might be held hostage bar has something so maybe she might be a little mix of both Bara dr has barely been seen since he was reportedly involved in a violent clash with the connie's during government formation talks a gay. The county network He recently researched as in canada. Heart to deliver a video message took squelch. Rubers said he was seriously injured but people are saying it looks kind of like a hostage video so not great for him. Tell him you're okay bitch. Tell them you're fine Anyway so interesting is. They're bad but expected news for women in afghanistan when schools reopen on saturday for grades seven through twelve only male students were told to report to their studies. The taliban said nothing about girls in those grades so they stayed home their families anxious and uncertain about their future. Both boys and girls grade one through six have been attending schools but separated by gender and curtains. And all that stuff. But now if you're a great seven through twelve no more for women basically the female litter serie literacy rate in afghanistan around thirty percent and probably gonna go way down pretty quick. So that's where you have to hope. That there is a good underground network like lance corporal. Underground that you know i knew. During taliban times from florida underground networks women teaching each other and learning and whatever but had to be so secretive of so dangerous l. and most important of all the taliban had sacked the executive director of afghanistan's cricket board that's right Yeah he announced on his facebook page. Monday i got fired by the taliban and they have taken it over a by one of one of the connie's took over before it. No sports in afghanistan maybe going allow cricket but it's taliban cricket. So that's a bummer. Finally kate has been in the news here and absolutely rude. Brood x right sheesh Finally the most important news of all that ended up you talk about the drone strike. And i'm fat for the. Us government actually came out and admitted that they made a mistake and said that the drone strike against the civilians Was a bad thing in that. They were sorry and that they were going to try to send money one. I think just a couple of notes quickly because we don't we've already talked about bound to get into it. I think it's good. That america finally acknowledged the fact that they did it but we would not have done that without the washington post and the new york times is investigation that revealed what was going on the half was forced because before that million all of them were saying that it was completely justified. Strike so. I think that we should make choices and a bridge just the way that we do. This and i think that part of this can be happened on the backs of congress and it's going to be congress responsibility because they took back the war powers from the executive government. I think that that.

It's all good to go. He's right he's absolutely right. I don't like the guy. The guy hates people of faith. It seems he questions faith. He's anti religion.

Who Is Exempt From Biden’s Vaccine Mandate?
"Who's exempt from biden's vaccine mandate members of congress and their staff are exempt from biden's vaccine mandate newsweek dot com biden issued two executive orders however biden's order on federal workers applies to the employees of the executive branch the house of representatives and the senate belong to separate legislative branch and the courts judicial branch of the federal government. The plan says quote building on the president's announcement in july to strengthen safety requirements for unvaccinated federal workers. The president has signed an executive order to take those actions. A step further inquire all federal executive branch workers to be vaccinated. Now when you look into some of the commentary regarding this vaccine mandate it's stunning to see how the propagandists in the media. They're not just at war with the unvaccinated which by the way every person starts out unvaccinated like a normal breathing healthy functioning individual. It's the new social caste system you star on yourself. You are the unvaccinated get over here. You're not allowed to our restaurants. You're the unwashed which many of most of whom by the way are black people so here you see again the racism of white liberals in the ruling class that want nothing to do with black people hispanic people but this one clip from sheryl gay stolberg where she says. Look getting vaccine. It's not a personal choice. It's something that we do for the community. Your personal choice ends. Were my right tanaka killed by infectious. Disease begins okay. Well sheryl gay stolberg under that belief by. They're going to use the same sort of narrative to confiscate guns very soon just so we're clear public health. There's no guarantee for you. Sheryl gay stolberg when you get in the car. You might not become one of thirty five thousand automobile fatalities every single year. No guarantee part of life in part of living in a free society means that things might happen to you that you might not expect. That's what a mature society does instead. The new york times health reporter says that there's no personal choice. I'm gonna tell you what to do because of me. Do you notice that the argument here has now flipped. Originally the moral argument that was being made was go get vaccinated for the people around you to save your grandmother to save your grandfather to go save other people or at the very least get vaccinated because you'll be protected however now the argument is changing. Now you have to get vaccinated to protect me
Jonathan Capehart Says MAGA Movement Is 'More Worrisome' Than Foreign Terrorists
"To be talked to like adults. There is not a collective more that binds us together and the terrorists apart. There is a lot tearing us apart right now. You want evidence queue up for me Cut. Three. Jim. This is Jonathan Capehart, one of the dumbest guys on television. The only reason we put them in my dopey talking head Olympics because candidly nobody knows who he is. So it doesn't matter anyway. But occasionally he surfaces with some pearl of stupidity, not wisdom. And here's him this weekend on PBS or whatever. Was he on? Jim was a PBS usually, uh, PBS. See, Jim's always great. He actually puts it, I send them clips. I never put any details. He had poor guys to fill them in. So here's Jonathan Capehart on PBS with the ever hapless David Brooks from The New York Times who pretends to be a conservative, you know, shaking his head to an agreement with it, like Bozo the clown. Here's K part but the silliest man on television talking about how Maga Yeah, the Maga move, Make America great again. Moving is definitely more worrisome than the the terrorists. Check this out. I think, um Marga and the domestic terror threat is much more worrisome. Then any foreign threat we could face. And David Brooks is over there with his spectacles on going on. They have bozo the clown. I agree, uh, morons. And again you expect me to? It's going to let let's just throw cliche nonsense out there to an audience. I would have no respect for you at all. There's so much more to get back to 9 12. There's so much more that binds us here. No, there's not. No, there isn't No, there isn't cut the crap. Stop talking to people like they're idiots. Now there isn't anything I share in common with this moron Maga. People are more
September 13th, 1922: The Straw Hat Riot in New York City
"Day was september thirteenth nineteen twenty two in new york city. A group of teenage boys grab the straw hats of some factory. Workers stopped them flat on the sidewalk and then ran like mad later that evening. The boys did the same thing to some dockworkers but this time the hat wearers fought back. The ensuing brawl grew so large. It stopped traffic on the manhattan bridge and police had to be called in to break it up the following day. The new york times reported that quote scores of rowdies on the east side and and other parts of the city started smashing hats. Police reserves were called out straw hat. Bonfires were started and seven. Men were convicted of disorderly conduct in the men's night court. And here's the thing is a wild is all that sounds. The straw hat riot was just getting started by now though. You're probably wondering what's with all the hat smashing to answer that. We have to talk a little about men's fashion in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries at the time buildings didn't have air conditioning or central heating so menswear tended to follow a seasonal shift going from heavier fabrics in the fall and winter to lighter fabrics in the spring and summer. This changeover also applied the hats. Most men of the time wore hats every day typically felt once but they would switch to straw hats in the summer as a way to stay cool over time in unwritten rule. Emerged similar to the idea that you shouldn't wear white after labor day. In this case a man could only don his straw hat between may fifteenth and september fourteenth when the fifteenth rolled around it was time switch back to felt hats for another eight months. This became such an accepted norm that a tongue in cheek new york times article proclaimed that any man who wore a straw hat passed. The cutoff date was quote. A communal enemy and a potential subverter of the social order
The Hidden Hand of the Chinese Communist Party Over Washington, DC
"The only peer the only peer or near pay a threat that america faces at a strategic level is communist china. I know your your ambit isn't the broad scope of national security but given that you focus on china day in day out. Would you put it in that. Category of mir pir competitor. I think they're they are an enemy. I mean point blank. And i think about the role of pair. Oh yes certainly. But i think what's so interesting and what we've really dug into it. The national polls is how. The chinese communist party has really kind of crafted the narrative about their rise in the united states. So we're talking about For example trips that have been organized by the china united states exchange foundation which is one of these many many many foreign agents that operate in the united states. It's essentially funded by the chinese communist party. It's part of what's called the united front which is a multibillion dollar effort that that's linked to china's military who's really sole goal is to compromise american elites and get them to push policies that china support so. I always joke. It's hunter biden except the people don't get caught and so much of this group's efforts was actually paying for journalists from every mainstream media outlet washington post new york times You name it. Msnbc literally all you can go check out the story. Every single media taking his journalists on trips overseas to china and upon return when you read the documents that these journalists were forced to basically outline what they were doing they had to provide favourable coverage of the chinese communist party and what they were doing in the united states and more broadly what that effort represents and keep in mind. There's over two hundred fifty registered foreign agents on behalf of the chinese communist party in the united states right now. The people who are formally registered the doj to lobby on behalf of china. Yeah and you know part of it. Is that these. People have set out to endeavour to change america's perception of china. And they kinda wanna frame it in the context of oh well doing business with china's great the two most powerful countries. We need to work together. It's just the way the world But i also think it's important. They also set out endeavor. The you to change the perception of how americans view america. And i think we've done similar reporting actually believe it or not on how the same group. The china united states exchange foundation. Whose sole goal is to get american league's american journalists types really echo the claims of beijing and the american media landscape. They're actually longtime partners of the talk group that sued the trump administration For trying to ban critical race theory from the federal government. So there's just you know you're asking how i kind of got into this and that's kind of the broader story when i really started looking into it and realizing the extent kind of the hidden hand that the chinese communist party has over dc but more. Broadly the united states and really frankly the whole western elites fear. You can't unseat it
Biden Announces Vaccine Plan for Employers
"Vaccine requirements just announced by president biden are not out of the blue. They're not even the first ones we had for. Covert nineteen as new york times notes today. We've already got experience with large employers starting to require vaccination at among other things. But we've learned from that experience so far. Is that the requirements work. They succeed at their goal of getting more people to get the shot last month. For example the pentagon announced that active duty military personnel would have to get vaccinated that has just been announced so far. They haven't hit a deadline for it yet. But already the proportion of active duty personnel. Who had the shot has gone from. Seventy six percent to eighty three percent. Same deal with the. Va seven weeks ago. The va told its frontline. Health workers they had to get the shot since then the number of va frontline workers who've been vaccinated has gone from seventy seven percent up to eighty two percent and still rising same deal at private sector employers like united airlines for example employees. There were told last month that they'd have until october. Twenty fifth to get vaccinated. Well s- only september tenth. Now there's still plenty of time before that deadline hits but already just since laying out that eventual requirement the majority of united airlines workers who weren't vaccinated before that announcement have since become vaccinated. We know it works and we've had plenty of other vaccine requirements throughout our history. That have also worked. But as the president indicated today we also know that republican governors and republican elected officials will sue and try to stop these new policies as if they're totally novel as if this is some brand new idea. The united states supreme court has ruled multiple times going back more than a century that it is not unconstitutional to require americans to get a vaccine. Even if a person doesn't want to in the context of a serious public health threat you can be required to be vaccinated. They ruled that way back in one thousand nine five in the context of mandatory smallpox vaccine requirement in massachusetts. They ruled that way in nineteen twenty two in the context of vaccines being required of students if they wanted to attend
Media Ignore Racial Attack on Larry Elder
"I hear that the energy at your rallies of course. I spoke at one of them but You've got really big rallies. The energy is analogous to a trump energy. I think that's right Dentist i have been overwhelmed by the enthusiasm. Men coming up to me crying saying thank you for saving california. Thank you for doing something about the crime. Thank you for doing something about the rise of homelessness. Thank you for doing something about the way this man shut down the state to the point. Dennis where a third of all small businesses are now gone forever. Many of which were only by black and brown. Asian american people. I only mentioned their race because people like avenue some themselves on caring about people like that And then i hear from women. Were telling me finally. I'm going to be able to have a choice. I can take my kid out of an underperforming government school And put him into a private school or charter. School or private school or home schooling. This is the kind of stuff that i'm hearing. And if i'd never ever imagined that it would be this kind of reception to my entering this race. I know. I know you didn't glow could you. You're just you're not an arrogant man to begin with so i. I have no doubt that this is taken by surprise and well-deserved by the way the smear campaign against you. Which is something i am used to reading about about anybody who was ineffective conservative. I'll give an example aside from the black face of white supremacy which should have rendered the author fired by the los angeles times but An example. I think i don't know if it was the new york times or or or wherever that you don't believe there is racism in america. Yeah well of course i. I've never said anything. Of course is is what. I've challenged that business about whether they're systemic racist The idea that the police are pulling people over in using voice against white people just because they're black that's been re the study. It's nonsense is what the left does to divide america to scare black people because they convinced a large number of black people. Dennis of that social justice is the primary issue in america. Not quality of schools not crime. Not where the nacho able to get a job and so they do this because they want to try and get that monolithic lactoferrin which they cannot survive at the presidential level.

Why Isn't There Outrage Against Larry Elder's Attackers?
"Him and his security team were attacked with eggs. Punches. Fists were accosted, screamed at yelled at called Disparaging names by a person wearing a monkey suit. And that candidate happened to be black. Harry Elder. You can't tell me with a straight face that you wouldn't be demanding everyone be arrested and FBI civil rights investigation. Every person be canceled. The camera man be canceled the street be torn down a comment to hit this section of California where it happened to scorch the Earth. A bacteria side dropped afterwards to make sure no pathogen or any other organism ever lives in that area again. You would, because That's what you do. And we'd be rightfully angry to you would hear conservatives saying that's pretty disgusting. We shouldn't do that stuff. Of course, we wouldn't want to comment or any of that because we're not crazy like leftist, But it's kind of weird because the candidate's name is Larry Elder, not Harry Elder, and he happens to be a black Republican attacked by a crazy person in a monkey suit. Throwing eggs and punches at him and his people. It's It's weird. You don't you don't you? Don't say that. We don't We don't want to hear anything. We don't hear much at all.

Mark Levin Calls out New York Times' Paul Krugman
"There was a piece in the, uh, New York Times by Paul. I don't know if it's Krugman a Krugman He's supposed to be the best. The The radical left has as an economist. But of course, he's pathetic. We've been trying to get in touch with this man. For how many days Mr. Pitt is here. Since Saturday. We've emailed. We've tried to contact and we've heard nothing. I put out a public challenge to him to debate me about my book. We've heard nothing. And I want to put out that public challenge again to, uh Mr Dr Krugman or Krugman to come on the show. 30 minutes, maybe an hour. Let's debate the substance in my book, the substance of the book. Cause you're a gutless coward. You're a fraud. I'm calling you out. And my time with a little munchkins. I'm calling you out. Tough guy, Big guy, right? And he twists and turns Frederick Kayak and so forth, and and I want to get into this with him. Starts as paragraph remember Austrian economics in the aftermath of the 28 financial crisis. Number of conservatives rejected Cain's economic prescriptions and claimed instead to be devotees of the Austrian school, especially Frederick Hayek. Question about how many of these sub proclaimed Austrians actually knew what they were endorsing in general, when right wingers talk about intellectual history. You want to fire up your fact checking For example, Mark Levin of Fox News has a best selling book, claiming not just that the current American left is in the thrall of European Marxists. But more specifically that their followers or Herbert Marcus and the Frankfurt school except that he keeps calling it the Franklin School, and that's where you lose it.

Mobs will watching as the public health. Establishments started to reflect politics rather than actual public health guidance. Watching as the media went out of its way to continue to promulgate falsehoods in the name of particular political points of view. It was deeply

"Know you're just like dripping to talk about that. And i'm gonna talk about branding because rarely do. I think that a business has brand power. Ooh i like it. I like it like most of the time because it takes so long to build up brand power and so much trust and so much repeatable years and years and years of convincing customers like hey. I keep delivering on what i say. I'm delivering on that rarely. If you hold out you know the bottle of advil versus the generic like has invested a ton of money and time into winning that battle but like most companies especially tech companies that we cover on this show. Just don't actually have brand power. The new york times has incredible brand power. They can print things that i wouldn't even believe if some blogger printed it but it's literally the exact same story in the times one hundred percent. I will take that as truth. Yup well it's Tests is the same product. If it had a different name on the masthead. In this case would you value it differently. Yeah hundred percent. There could be the exact same words article In different places and it would be valued differently. Yeah this might be the clearest. I think example of brand power that we've had on the show far right like i pay for the new york times if it was a different mass and it was all the same articles like i probably wouldn't be paying for it. Joe totally okay. Scale economies interesting. Like i think the business has probably both iterations of the business had scale economies. Certainly the old school print newspaper business. Did because you need president distribution that worked to get your paper out. There does scale to support that you know good like printing paper and sustaining it. And then as we've talked about in the new school business You know this we keep harping on it but the salaries that they pay reporters in the number of reporters and journalists they employ By being able to amortize that across much larger subscriber base can certainly outgun any other organization out there yup total classic example is real else in here. This is Going out on a limb and may be tenuous as so often with this power. But i'm just wondering if maybe we might finally be able to make an argument for process power and my thought on this is that there is literally one hundred seventy year tradition and institutional knowledge of how to do high quality journalism in this organization started by family by like a single sort of you know shared value set people yup and could you say that that is so wrapped up in the organization that it can't be transferred out..

"Where if you're really going to be the paper of record and you're really going to be the paper for everyone the authoritative source. Your business model actually should not be to get a small number of people to subscribe to you. It should be to get your content to the largest number of people in america in the world and not limit your reach at all by your business model. I mean the the argument that if you were a very would make here is. Subscriptions are furner niche providers. Like do you should be figuring out how to run a successful advertising based open publication for the internet. If if what you really want to do is be the neutral paper of record because what you're doing creates an incentive for you to create strong affinity with a certain group and whether that group is liberal subscribers people who don't like the president or whoever you think they've attracted over the last few years the new york times without a doubt in this business model has every incentive in the world to identify a sort of large niche and create high affinity among that niche. And that may not necessarily align exactly with pure journalistic neutrality super interesting aside. I forgot to include in the history and facts the paper of record the new york times as the paper of record that saying quote actually comes from a very specific business strategy from the times really. They added the index to the times that they published. I believe quarterly in nineteen teens. The index was literally an index of every topic and person institution that appeared in the times over the past quarter and the reason they started doing that. And the invested in doing it was so that librarians and researchers around the world would start using the times as their main news source because it had this index and then they would get into schools and then they get you know and so. That's where the paper of record idea comes from but to your point it's Well actually it may be sort of counter like they were sort of specifically trying to target a niche group of lake. We're going to get into the elites in like of researchers and academics in schools. But yeah it's interesting. Yeah david it's interesting like this. This really raises the point of to be subscriber. Only really your motivation is to create really strong affinity from someone such that they're willing to pay for your content and you could do this by being really niche but the question is is there room for sort of one subscription in everybody's media diet where the way that you're creating that really strong affinity is by saying we are just the highest quality most neutral journalism that you could find. Does that stimulate a by decision in the same way to that going to someone and saying i'm gonna appeal to all of the biases that you have and say like i'm gonna keep giving you more of what you love like. Can you actually build just as big a business if you are the one scale player to really have these subscription for everyone. It's just saying. I don't know i mean i. My mind goes back to the fox news discussion really. I don't think anybody would argue. Maybe maybe some people maybe we'll get emails and comments in the slack. But i don't think anybody would argue. that fox. news has a target demographic of political conservatives. Right it depends on your definition of niche. It's a huge freaking niche. While right that's the thing it's a huge brick knit and you know. Even with that business strategy they built a five billion dollar fifty percent ebitda margin business right and i guess the question..

They have no debt on their balance sheet at twenty nineteen completely debt. Free completely debt free. They have all of this. Incredibly high margin subscription digital subscription revenue. That no other deuce organization in the world has they have multiples more subscribers than the wall street journal which is when you say that no other organization in the world has so that the new york times i think the today i think it's seven and a half million new subscribers. V closest one is the washington post was somewhere like two and then after that it drops real far the l. a. times has like a half million or less and like it goes on and on down from there and when you look at the number of subscribers that they ever had in print like ever in two thousand and two they had i think one point one million. The new york times was the number one print circulation newspaper at least in america only a million subscribers to the print edition so like they figured it out and just at the right time and then had this frigging unbelievable tailwind happen with with the trump presidency. Yeah and in the meantime like you alluded to in the hook at the beginning of the show they're hiring like all the best journalistic talent in the world to come right at the times and they're paying them more than anyone else because they can afford to because they've got essentially a netflix. Like business model at this point. Did you know that new york times average salary for a journalist is over twice that of the industry average. Yup i think the i think the average starting salary is over one hundred thousand dollars. It's like who thought in ten years ago that a news media a newspaper would be paying over one hundred thousand dollars starting salaries to journalists. Yeah it's definitely be to be congratulated before we dive into today and then get into the of this episode. Which my gosh. How are we not.

Fis news is the number. One news. Work network on tv becomes number one passes. Cnn it remains number one every single week from then for literally nineteen th straight years until january of this year after the capital riots when they lost a lot of years like literally nineteen hundred eight years. It is the most watched news network ought american television. That is unbelievable. Yeah so whatever you think of fox news as an organization like for we're not here to judge one way or the other it brings in so this is fox's total cable network segment of fox. News is by far the lion share in twenty nineteen generated. Five point four billion dollars in revenue and two and a half billion dollars of so. That's like a fifty percent fifty percent ebitda margin. That's facebook good. Yeah i just found this so interesting lake in so many ways now. People think of the new york times on one end and fox news on the other end like even the new york times would absolutely assert. We are in the center and we are in in on no end totally but this is like an espn level business. That the times would have built something different. But i think they got into broadcast television. They're getting into the internet missing. The boat on the opportunity for cable news was huge. Here yeah it's interesting. I never if you would if you hadn't told me about all the diversification that new york times had done and you knew of it today just the way they are sort of single brand single pseudo. Single product company and said should the new york times. go into cable or should they have gone into cable. I'd be like no. That's not what they do. Is their core competency like barely do video on their website and their mobile app. Well they definitely shouldn't do that but clearly they were trying stuff and they were willing to do stuff like this and just it yup. Yup they frankly just missed it and d- did they miss it like one question i have is the times. Doesn't have it in to do something. Outwardly an intentionally partisan and so maybe they saw the opportunity but didn't believe that it was there for a centrist that good existed in does very well So i think it could have been different and it would. I think be very unlikely that the times would have said okay great. We're gonna make a cable network but we're gonna target liberals specifically right so it's certainly complicated but i just like i wanted to go dive into.

Orville dreyfuss this guy orville dreyfuss is the timothy dalton of the new york times family succession like he is definitely for any james bond fans out there. Like he's the one that was kind of like in one or two movies and you're like wait that guy play james bond and then quickly you're onto the next one like. Yeah no. he's the gil amelio. A comparison lasted two years two years. Unfortunately because he died unexpectedly. But so his wife marian sulzberger daughter like she came up with the idea for people magazine. So like all of these women involved at the time. Zelic dollars maybe. Here's an idea. Keep them yeah exactly. So when drivers dies in sixty three then the youngest arthur youngest child who is their only son. Arthur ochs nicknamed punch sulzberger. Six has publisher. And because they're all a something salzburger. We're just gonna call him punch the rest of the budge he's got like arthur or we've got adolph ochs than we've got arthur sulzberger than we've got pilots. Well i mean you drive. Timothy dalton gil amelio punch then. We'll have punches son who will call junior. Who is a arthur arthur sulzberger jr. yet right after after him so we'll just call him junior and then there's a g who's the polish today. Yes exactly all these things for everyone keeping score at home so punch ends up being publisher sort of like his father for Almost thirty years he remained publisher until nineteen ninety-two and he really led the times through a lot of change but it was sixty three who when he took over and of like what is a huge huge change. Besides all the change. That's happening in the sixties. In america. Television is out there so not only does the times have a competitor like the medium has a competitor now and they realized and i think as best as i can tell. A lot of this was punch that the best way to differentiate from. Tv news was that they needed not just to sorta report the facts anymore. Like what the differentiation that newspapers had was. They could go deeper there. Like the acquired of news report interpret the facts and the meeting behind the facts said tell people why this is important and why this is happening and dow is really a big sort of change. I think for the times newsroom. Because if you think back to two ox it was all about like just the facts impartial. No no judgment and you know here. You can't help introduce some judgment but like there's a service of lake explaining meeting as well right and and not just on the opinion page but choosing what context to put around a story in just reporting in reporting the story. You know you're you're introducing your own bias your own judgment in choosing what context to include around the facts. Yup so punch developed saying that i actually a g. The current publisher. I i read a quote from him that he still references Of you that people don't come to the time for news. They come for judgement so in the kingdom and the power gay talese rates. Of course the trick was to do this. without editorializing. there was a difference between interpreting editorializing izing than executive editor a catalog. Turner knew that the line between the two was sometimes thin and if the time was to achieve the goal and yet avoid making a mockery of oxes motto about objectivity it had to have a more vigilant copy desk more unchallenged.

"Set it up this way that each of the three of them had a vote because he wanted if a gene he wanted to essentially make sure that arthur was a good husband to her because she had the deciding vote between him and crozon to be a publisher which is like really weird and sexist and kind of strange but also like super crafty style building up of ox. we've done. This is not the only time throughout history but it will be the first sort of part of the new york times history where you sort of have to look at it with a squinty eye and go. Ooh that's a little bit of a black mark. Yeah so if it's so. She went to barnard and was college-educated. See double majored in economics and history. She was super super smart. As you would expect of like the only child of adolph ochs and it's hard to tell exactly what she wanted but some accounts say she did want to take over the times and become the publisher. Unfortunately that wasn't in the cards but she remained on the board of the company for pretty much her whole life. She lived to be ninety eight years old. She didn't die until eighteen ninety. And there's some debate on this people might know Audience does sort of nickname of the times is the gray lady. And there's multiple sorta origin stories of degree lady. Nickname wanted meat. Did it later become the good gray lady or where does good come in. Maybe that's part of it So i think the origin is the bank of england was called the good lady or something like that and so it's sorta borrowed from that. Some people say the gray came from like looking at the patriots. Bunch of gray data. Do sprayed it's a great paper. Became the gray lady. Alternatively if gene is the gray lady she was a presence on the board and sort of the link to ox and the Moral fiber if you will of the company for ninety years until nineteen ninety. It's crazy and this is really introducing the very first of many not necessarily outwardly contentious but inwardly contentious succession decisions. That happened the new york magazine quote continues from earlier. If gene being the deciding vote supported her husband thus cleaning a fault line in the family that was never repaired and that you can imagine generations. Go by this thing really starts to compound because there starts to be massive numbers of cousins. Who are you know the same way related to adolf that the people who ended up sort of succeeding adolf and you know five generations later. They're sort of the same amount related but there's not sort of the chosen bloodline to pass down the paper through and it has always been a male air that has become the publisher now to five generations. Even though there are plenty of daughters in the family so ox crafty lake. He is he sort of his. so gay. Talese the great writer from the fifty sixty s seventy s who actually worked as a reporter at the new york times for a while. He wrote sort of the definitive Book about the new york times in in i think he came out in nineteen sixty nine called the kingdom and the power which. I don't think the family loved like this one. I was reading the the trust from about right around year. Two thousand refers to the kingdom of the power. And i think he was always after we released. That kept it a little bit of arms length. Yeah so he writes about this. He says how long the times would survive would depend largely on. How will oxy's airs got along in the decades ahead..

"The time until this. I'd apparently i did find this. The trask and the rest of the committee that was dealing with the bankruptcy of the times was in favor of a different plan to merge it like to basically unload the assets merged into a different paper. Wipe their hands clean and say look we got something for it and instead adolph's walking in here with like a whole different plan of like i am going to figure out how to revive this thing and make it great and of course. There is some wicked financial engineering. That he promises a that he really has to make the case of like you. Don't just it's not a cash by here like you're going to have to believe in in order to make this work. Yup so cleveland writes back with like a letter of endorsement and he walks in there with a letter of endorsement from the president of the united states. Incredible so the bankruptcy committee accepts his plan. He pays seventy five thousand dollars up front to the creditors which he also scraped together with borrow money because remember he owes one hundred thousand dollars right. This is the craziest thing. This guy buys the new york times he will eventually have a controlling interest in it and as it says in the trust. This is my passage. The yoko from tennessee had accomplished the impossible. He had bought the new york times using none of his own money. Amazing this the minnow swallows wail from when cap cities body bc hundred percent. So how does it work exactly. There's like seventy five k. that he quotes puts up. Actually he goes in like gets people in tennessee to put an upright. He'd like rounded up the money from some people in new york. Some people in tennessee. I think he waved around the letter. From cleveland to a bunch of people so that was a small part of the consideration. The other part is he uses salaries notes again of six hundred thousand dollars in debt to owed back to the creditors that they will pay off over some number of the coming years from prophets. He'll generate by running this paper. That has nine thousand subscribers in his bleeding. I think on the order of about half a million dollars a year at this point in losses. You can see why if you're trask or the existing bankruptcy committee. You're like i think we'll take the merger like this doesn't sound like any kind of guarantee this guy that no one's ever heard of. He's coming in from tennessee. Like you gotta sympathize with the original plan. Yeah totally but somehow he gets it done so he emerges with the new york times and he has just like one problem which is okay. How are you gonna are. You gonna turn this thing around okay. So what's the plan. What what's the play on..

"Chattanooga times but he needs one hundred k. Like faster than four years. He's not gonna cut it. He does know he can turn around newspapers though so he starts putting out some feelers traveling around the country looking for another newspaper that he could buy and take over just like he did with the chattanooga times and we should say a key component to the success of him turning around the chattanooga times comes from the fact that chattanooga was this sort of melting pot of north and south and adolf really believed in that and he really believed in the chattanooga times as unbiased paper of the people representing a balanced view of the world and chattanooga was sort of the perfect place to pull that idea from totally very very very much. So that's when he hears he gets wind of the bankruptcy proceedings going on in new york for the new york times. And i he's like supposedly he's like. That's too big. Like i can't go. You know adolph ochs from chattanooga tennessee. I can't go like take over the new york times and at that point even though it was in dire trouble the brand of the new york times it was the best newspaper brand of the country. Still it was total definitely thought of as like the the paper but some mentors convince him that that he can do this so in eighteen ninety six. He packed up his bags. Hops on the train goes up to new york. Leaves his family behind running the chattanooga times and he scrapes together so the times in bankruptcy proceedings. He scraped together a plan to the creditors and to the receivers bankruptcy to take the paper out of bankruptcy and take it over. This is incredible. So he's like this this. I think he was late. Thirties at the time from tennessee shows up in new york. Kinda walks into the bankruptcy court has like believe me. I can do this and two convenient the thing about the the interbank transfer who no i. Don't he convinced a chattanooga bank to wire money to a new york bank so that if in new york people check to see like. Are you wealthy. He had a bank account with money in his name and to the chattanooga bank who he knew well he wrote them a personal check and said look. I'm good for it. I promise wire the money. I i don't intend to use it. That's a vase it's like there's incredible huckster stuff going on that he. He's sort of pulls got entrepreneurial. Hustle so did you find. Did you read about the other thing. He did to convinced the creditors of his legitimacy. You know this is amazing. so president. Grover cleveland the time like you as president had come through chattanooga. I think on his while he was campaigning. And as the leading newspaper publisher of the chattanooga times ox was on the welcoming committee so he got to meet grover. Cleveland was campaigning at you. Know he he kept his address at sixteen hundred pennsylvania avenue where to find him so he writes to the president while he's going to new york and he says he writes cleveland. He says i am negotiating for controlling interest in the new york times and have fair prospects of success. I write to respectfully ask that you address by return. mail a letter to mr spencer. Trask chairman of the new york times publishing company giving your opinion of my qualifications. Newspaper publisher general personal character. My views on public questions judged by of course the chattanooga times in other words say what you can have me as an honest industrious and capable newspaper publisher this incredible and he needed that support..

"San francisco and we are your hosts for over one hundred years. You would have been hard pressed to find a better business in the world than an american newspaper. Each one had a local monopoly. An incredibly profitable advertising business and it was one of the earliest examples of a reasonably low marginal cost business. It's cheap to just print another copy of the paper. The newspaper business was for a long time. Warren buffett's canonical example of a franchise. Like the best type of business. You can possibly own indeed and this today listeners is. The story of the paper that loomed large over all the others the new york times today we peer into what i think is the oldest company we've ever done on the show founded over one hundred and seventy years ago before the civil war the times has seen the majority of american history and for the majority of its life. It's been controlled by a single family and for many of you a family you've probably never heard of. This is a family whose paper shaped the american perception of current events through world war one world war two vietnam. I mean really their newspapers shaped your perception of america itself and your parents perception and your grandparents perception you get it. It is probably safe to say that the five generations of the oxo's burger family has been the closest thing that america has ever seen to a dynasty after a century of near continuous prosperity. The new york times has seen an incredibly dramatic fall and then rise just in the last twenty years the internet and social media on top of it brought ruin to the entire traditional journalism industry in the late two thousands the new york times got to such a low point that they even sold their office building to free up some cash while they rented it back from the buyer roof.

"It's been asserted by the Attorney General of. Of the United States and others in the US government, but as an assertion in an op Ed, it does not strike me as it hasn't been debunked, either and I was gonna say as an assertion in an op, ed. It doesn't strike me as really much beyond what you could read in. OP EDS in the New York. Times across the board every day by their columnists and others, there are assertions made I mean as you read the cotton piece, let's take away the headline. The crudity of the in jarring nature of the headline did you find it objectionable on its face and something? You would not have run if you were in James. Bennett shoes such a good question. I would I you know. Here's what I'd say I I tend towards wanting to ventilate arguments. People are able to knock down his arguments by reading it closely I. DO think that you know the Times mistakes. Itself thinks that good news coverage of something setting it out fairly, but also setting out legal and moral than other objections, and and challenges to. It doesn't accomplish the. The job as well I did note some Michael. Powell not known as a reactionary commentator for the times, and not a right winger at now laboring in Sports, previously a columnist in the new side, you know, he said this was an embarrassing retreat from principal when the Times effectively apologized, and regretted the publication that said CJ shivers a former war correspondent for the Times A. I guess currently an investigative reporter for time. Who's himself a veteran of the US? Marine Corps said the decision to publish. This was wrong on its face and talked about what he's seen abroad when protesters face not domestic police, but military forces, trying to keep control of circumstances, and how that heightens tension, and you know he to talked about what journalists have faced. You know reported on fairly extensively as well the kinds of hostility and violence that journalists faced at the hands of police officers and law enforcement officials across the country in these recent weeks. Well beyond the Pale you know in the US It's often considered beyond the Pale to include for example, people from Hamas or leaders from Hamas in talking about what how you would deal with trying to come up with some sort of long-term peace surrounding Israel Palestine and the middle. East right in Israel. Newspapers are much more likely to publish those things. Yeah, that's within the accepted bounds of discourse. You know so I think these things are very fluid. What we saw as? was in some ways as a result of market forces, it was useful for newspapers as the number of newspapers dwindled in major cities across the country to appeal not too strong niches like cable news does now, but more blandly to a broader part of the population. So that's how impartiality was embraced by newspapers and became a journalistic ethic. It became a matter of principle, but it was really driven by market forces. You don't. Don't have to be a Marxist to see that right, so you know the things that we take as points of absolute morality and principal in our profession often evolve overtime forces that are actually apart from that so i. think that whether or not you think what Bennett was right, the clearly was strong reaction from their readership, but in this case the readership that that undermined him. What's inside the newsroom across the way? At a on the news side of the divide there, and that was a problem for Sulzberger and I think that right now. Journalists are raw and I think that they are. It's more like the seventies to me. You know people are talked about this being sixty eight, but it feels to me like the seventies where people are like, are we inventing new forms narrative or inventing new forms of what ethics mean what it needs to be an ethical journalist, and sometimes that can lead very positive results, and sometimes it can lead to chaos because. It's not clear where the lines are drawn right now and I think he's in that. You know like The Washington Post where Ben Smith, had a great column in The Times about how Marty Baron perhaps the best newspaper in the country right now nonetheless has a sort of rigid control over what's appropriate for people to say on social media it drives out some of their very talented people, and it also caused great confusion, because the editors don't always know what principles they're applying other than trying to shut people up, you know, David. You mentioned Israel. I had been thinking the same thing I was based. There was always struck by the. The vigorous debate in the newspapers and the kind of you know basically a battle of ideas, and it seems to me I guess one of the questions coming out of this episode at The Times and the other ones is that there's a danger of a chilling effect that these op. Ed Pages ought to be forums for vigorous debate in our society and I remember years ago as a young journalist, I worked for the Washington Post editorial page for the late great. Meg Greenfield and I think one of the things that she used to do. With part of the problem. is you run a piece like the cotton piece? There's no context. All you have is a piece. That's very provocative, and that is very prominent. It's the op-ed page of the New York Times. She used to run kind of point counterpoint when there was a more provocative piece of that sort, so I kind of wonder like. Because I think it would be kind of a sad thing, if opinion editors were no longer willing to run provocative pieces, so what are the kind of prescriptive things that you can do to continue running those kinds of pieces, but avoid some of the pitfalls that has you know led to? Bennett's being pushed out and I. Guess The question is. Are you worried about a? A chilling effect as a result of these kinds of decisions, Bari Weiss, who's a conservative something of a contrarian at the Times was hired as an editor, and soon became a writer on under her own name, is basically characterized this as tensions between the woke young `uns, and the more, classically liberal, forty and fifty. Something's at times, and she tributes this kind of Smothering correctness that she attributes to college campuses now I can tell you having been a former higher education, reporter, college, campuses, or clamorous paces, player, people, debate and outrage each other all the time. There may well be a left of center ISM, but it's you know they're a lot of conservative voices. They're to you in a lot of lot of clashes there. You know it's really question how times conceives of itself is. For Liberal America. Is it for all America? You know back in the day they used to have basically one conservative voice and William Safire Right, and I thought he was enormously engaging in reading with the morning lists was great, but you know he was pretty alone there for a long time and under Bennett they've tried to increase that to be honest under his predecessor. They tried to increase that, but there's always been this sort of wink till Abramson. Once said to me, you know we're not a liberal paper, but were a cosmopolitan paper. That understands the sensibility of the upper west side, and you know so. They wanted elite. They wanted bankers advertising type people, and they also wanted people who aspired to the kind of life reflected in the pages of the New York Times and the issues interested in the issues written there and so there's this kind of wink and. As I think it's easier than ever you know. The Times I think stumbles over itself not to be too explicit in going after president trump in characterizing it I think Washington Post Times harder hitting, and it's things about calling things racist calling things lives rather than evasions and yet in terms of social media. It is much more rigid about what it lets people do, and how voiced it lets people be. And you're just two different models of of an approach there each with its own problems i. do think that you know good news. Organizations allow the ventilation of a lot of different kinds of ideas from a lot of different perspectives. I do think under Fred Hi. Meg Greenfield, successor at the Washington Post I, think that is very careful, centrist editorial stance, but also by and large a fairly establishment..

If in this particular case, you know what it reflects about what's going on more generally in newsrooms out there and had a new generation of reporters kind of fueled and liberated by Social Media You have the excesses of course of the trump administration, and in some ways a rethinking or even discarding of kind of traditional standards and conventions that we've all relied on journalism, you know striving for kind of pure objectivity balance reflecting both sides both. Both side ISM becoming a bad word these days in favor of different kind of notion of truth, which is closer to the idea of taking moral stances in some cases, so is this something that you're seeing in newsrooms around the country, and is this kind of reckoning? That is taking place right now. rummy disentangle some of the important things that you're talking about here because I. Think you're onto something. I would characterize it a little differently. I would say. We moved from this notion of impartiality of objectivity. And progressive notion of about a century ago right to one I wouldn't call it to truth. I would call it to fairness, and the idea is to be fair to your readers to be fair to you. Particularly the people in subjects writing about the communities your rooted in and also to the facts and the truth, and that was the idea of fairness was a way of getting out of the pit of saying well, you know we said candidate X., said this, we said candidate. That candidate X. was actually making slanderous claims that are ungrounded fact unsupported by evidence, but we presented both sides. That is actually a journalistic failing. That is both lazy, and not you. What is the point of what we're doing? I always feel like the point of what we're doing ultimately is to enable people to act not just as consumers of news, but as citizens that they have the. I don't need to tell somebody what to vote or how to vote or what to think, but I want to tell somebody happy information the context that they can make up their own minds about what's going to best serve them their families, their communities, their nation, right and I think fairness was way of getting at that now there is I think among some journalists particularly, but not only younger journalists and idea. Even that is A. A fool's game when you were reporting an asymmetrical age, the symmetric calorie has a lot to do, but not only to do with partisan politics that is the Republican Party and the Democratic Party play by different rules. When it comes to journalism, it comes to facts and it comes to. The respected doesn't afford journalists in the role. They play in the political cycle. They're certainly extreme figures in an unscrupulous figures on the left as well. And Online, but there's a way in which people are saying, you know. Let's just get to the truth. Let's just get to what is moral, and what is true, and what is moral, and what is professionally ethical eric kind of different. And you know you can be amoral and still ethical. You can tell the story without saying this is wrong, but you can present the facts in a way that allow people to get there. And there's attention you know. I Value Opinion Journalism. It can be done well from the right and the left, but it's got to be fair to the back there. Other people who say you know we have to be clear on morality here and there are people you know. Newsroom editorial pages genuinely are run separately from newsrooms from the reporting wing of newsrooms as you guys both know in conventional legacy news outlets, and yet people at the times and people at the Philadelphia Inquirer say this is representing my brand. This is representing who I am publicly, and it's not in keeping with where I'm at. Yes, there should be dissonant voices. Yes, there should be con-. Pro and con, yes, there should be a vast rate things debated, but certain things shouldn't be amplified by the New York, times and giving credence and credibility they should be covered in the news pages, but as the. Clear violation of civil liberties that they represent whatever they have again. I think that. There's a real case to be made for what Bennett did. She has mean he has harbored the aspiration for his time at at the new. York Times of ultimately taking over for team Buckeye as the editor in chief, called the executive editor there and leading the newsroom, and he is seriously mis read the news from a number of Cajun what whatever the merits of his decisions. You have to be able to lead in those positions. Maybe bring people along to a place. They didn't initially want to go and he has failed on a number of cases to do that PG, Bird. The publishers backed him a couple of times. He just say you know finally, said you know. There was a lapse in editorial decision making here, and not for the first time I think the souls. Burgers have spent a little too much time explaining why what James Bennett did was right. To their own staffers. To the point where they ultimately felt this was a liability. Well I wasn't it wasn't helpful to his cause I don't think that he did not read the piece which he ultimately acknowledged and an editor of a section that produces a large amount of copy may not read every piece, but it is his or her responsibility to make sure that those pieces that are going to be very provocative and controversial. They read sure and look you know again. I kind of admired some of the things Bennett was doing. I think that. That it was a more dissonant, more interesting editorial page than the one he inherited by in this moment I think you're seeing in real time playing out in front of US journalist, hashing out what's accepted and what's interesting in part because social media affords more junior reporters and more rank and file, journalists, the ability to speak out publicly and to commune and share with one another where they're coming from simply because somebody has said this is the right decision doesn't even that's accepted in the same way at once was. Even reluctantly and I think that means that that it's more like almost like college faculty at Times. Let's talk about what actually happened at the time because. I, think you alluded to this before Sulzberger the publisher at first defended Bennett and defended the decision to run the op-ed, and then there's this extraordinary blowback from the news room and reporters and editors are complaining and. Raising their objections to it and Sulzberger reverses himself. I mean it seems a little like a mutiny of a of a sword, in which you know, the rank and file got to dictate to the brass what they should do and I'm just you know your first and foremost a reporter on these things give us insight into how that reversal by Seoul's Burger came about. My understanding is that he didn't know originally that Bennett hadn't read it. And that ultimately he concluded or said he concluded that the process to get it on wine was a little flap dash. This was initially scheduled to run in the Sunday paper you know. The Review Section is published in advance of Sunday, but. They didn't have to get it up Wednesday at the time they did. They could have taken a little more time with that, too. that it out. The fact that some of his assertions were challenged on a factual basis by reporters enabled grapple hold for critics to try to tear it down. Let me just say this I thought. Rich lowry had very interesting piece in the back and forth, and we've allred columns in the New York Times elsewhere that make bold assertions that are perfectly or even ordeal agree well backed up facts so yeah. I was just going to say I. Mean You know one of the factual assertions that the editor's note that they appended to it challenged. Was that Khadr as of left wing? Radicals like Antifa were contributing to the violence. Now that has not been substantiated..

"Fighting with each other the place is a reflection that fight the same way that the Internet is this Weird Amalgam of the military industrial complex. Hippies like what like? They're sitting there protesting each other but quietly they're building this new thing. That's coming out you know and so I think that when you look at the tender rights fights you look at the gym be movement you look at all these different things happening in cities whatever the whatever the like trajectory will go on next is gonNA be. I think we'll look at this time as being like. Oh Oh wow that's how we got that thing but it'll be something when you and I can't even imagine right now because it just seems to strange so my point is I actually think that forty years from now somebody hopefully me can go. We'll go back and look at this period and the bay area at that time because I mean all the implications for democracy I mean who even knows the hall of these companies that are being created there and the effects. They're having on voting and social all. The stuff that were reconciling with every day. Whatever future we're going to have a horrible future. It might be a better future. I feel like we could see the seeds of it in this story. Yes I was thinking futures Better than you fear but worse than you wish. Well it's been my you know there. There are definitely points when you'd have been wrong but in general that's how it's worked out. The name of the book is Golden. Gate's fighting for Housing America. The author Connor Dougherty. Thanks so much connor. Thank you and now the Spiel man. Does THE NEW YORK. Times hate west side story when producer Scott Rudin announced. He was bringing the Leonard Bernstein and lyricist Stephen Sondheim musical Broadway in a new production directed by Ivan vanhove. You figure that everyone in the Times would give big cheer but everyone. There gave a huge sneer. Could it be yes? It could a new production. That's not very good but the thing is it is pretty good. According to most people have seen it other than New York Times not everyone but man does the times hated. I mean the New York Daily News called the show a gripping west side that you watch with both appreciation for the power of the young in love and a profound sense of all American doom. This is what Broadway can do when it focuses relentlessly in how it wants to make its audience feel the La Times said west side story blast back to Broadway kinetic bloody and modern to the core entertainment weekly gave it a b but the times critic Ben Brantley ripped it which is fine others did too. Anyway there's a new Spielberg movie coming out so if a show like this will give sorrow. You'll meet another one tomorrow. But it wasn't just the critic the main Broadway critic his appraisal. The new show has been subject to a torrent of negative coverage rotten reviews and outraged op eds. They've written to stories about the protests outside the theater aimed at the productions Bernardo Amare Roma. Sorry Roms are. When with the New York City ballet received naked photos of a company members? Girlfriend The New York Times ran and OP ED. That was against not this production specifically but the very idea of west side story being performed at all the headline let west side story and it. Stereotypes Dye sub. Had the latest Broadway. Revival can fix the painful ways it depicts Puerto Ricans the author their lights into this or any other revival of the show arguing quote these continuous revivals. Reinforce America's colonizing power to determine who Puerto Ricans get to be the Times Ran Brenton's main review calling the show a curiously unaffected reimagining of a watershed musical. And then it keeps. The drubbing wasn't complete and from all corners. They ran a dance specific review by Jia corless which decried the productions dancing as operating quote to varying degrees like wallpaper. Choreography doesn't make this west side story. Breathe there are other questionable moments. The review goes on as when the sharks jets position themselves on either side of Maria. Tony to pull them apart after the couple meets the gym it's an image embarrassingly more suited to an instagram post which is sad but fitting. This is an instagram show. The review which actually was I liked it was an insightful piece of criticism but I did think it also trying to start a rumble with a few of the other times critics. Who As documented? Load the show for other reasons. Jia Cordless wrote the production seems to be aiming for that cheesiest of words gritty cut to the Brantley review the irrepressible iconoclast van. Hove it was said would be taking a grittier roller approach. He wrote Gritty cheesy gritty. That's not witty. But shitty at you right by the way that diddy I feel pretty is not in this version of the musical. The opinion of the New York Times is obviously vital to a Broadway show so important that the publicity machine for this west side story took a straight news article written about the show and cobbled together a Frankenstein's monster of disconnected thoughts than bought a print ad which gave the impression that the New York Times said the show was quote gravity defying Daesh uncompromising passionate and beautiful. Some of those words are actually in many cases. Variations of those words did appear in the original times article but they were not applied to the show or the quality of the show itself. That ad did run in the New York Times lying about the New York Times and today the New York Times announced it was pulling that ad I guess. The producers of the show were desperate to see something less than scathing about their product in the paper of record and if they had to buy their way in with lies well they still thought there is a place for us. I'm not sure what's really happening with this. One Institution The New York Times on the corner of Eighth Avenue and West Fortieth and this other institution currently playing on the corner of Broadway and West fifty third. Is it a turf. War Isn't a culture clash. All I know is there seems to be a lot more to this west side story and that's it for today's show. Priscilla lobby is the associate producer of the gist. Where she's drawn the line so keep your nose is hidden. She's hanging signs saying visitors forbidden. But don't worry she's kidding. Oh wait hold on. And she ain't kidding. Daniel schrader just producer knows a boat. You can get on the gist. We ain't no delinquents. Were MISUNDERSTOOD DEEP DOWN. Inside of us there is good for a Debra do Peru and thanks for listening..

Even scared to break down. No more. Wanna find myself. No. Two. Over back. We weren't gone. That's true. That's true. I think it's pretty likely that most podcast listeners probably know ideal on we played at the beginning of this week's podcast. So let me lay it out that is, Mattie poppy POP for all the reporters in the room, who is the winner of the new season of American idol. And that is her debut single called going going gone. Which smart listeners will probably have already intuited was written by Jillian Michaels. I'm here with Karen Ganz. The only person perhaps on the planet who I could persuade is in the room with me, talk about American idol for somewhere between thirty and forty five minutes. I Garrett happy to be here John. Jared, how many times that I do to make sure that you fully got up on American idol in the past few days, many times John, I was quite busy the past few days, but you know what I did I made time. I appreciate that. That's what makes Karen great. Bought music editor and also maybe not in very well slept and not a good friend to me very. So so caring American idol ended this week poppy one American idol. That was the outcome. I was hoping for John's. You know what I think about that John. I don't think you like Matty poppy a trash out comb. What who did you wanna win? Let's get to it. He meet of the actual finalists or of the whole, okay. Let's do both actual finalists. And then all your options of the three of the file three, I think I probably would have enjoyed Caleb winning, but I expected Gaby to win. Three now of the twelve Michael j. or Katie Turner. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. No, I love them both. Yes, yes. Those two to me at once blitz. Let's talk about a problem that is I will say a long running American idol problem, which is number one, blanding tend to win shos Chelsea. Boy, Chris Allen. All the Chris Allen fans who were heated at me on Twitter on emails for all for that whole year. That was that was the most agree GIS of all idol. I, I can places because Adam Lambert is truly a breakout star in his way from American idol. Listen. For the next twenty minutes. I enjoy Adam Lambert. Sure. Conceptually I'll take Adam Lambert over course Allen, but I would probably whoever came in third that season, I would probably remember who that was not the David Archie lettuce season. No, that was David Cook. Yes, to David's from David, David. Okay. So all three American idol finalists this year. Yeah, we're blonde. Yes. The white blonde singers? Yes. Country or country adjacent? Yep. Singers. This is a persistent issue for American idol has been in the past. There was a long stretch where all the winners were white guitar Bros. the Kris Allen, David Cook filling Phillips. Y'all. Go shouts, filled Phillips, man. We're Phillips that song is still going banger. Yeah, so bang or some people covered it pretty effectively this actually, but this sort of like, I think if you look at who got cut just before the top three, you have Michael j. Woodard. Should we play something Michael j. wooded saying, can we please do my favorite of his performances? The one from cabaret. Oh, my God. Yeah. Let's listen to maybe this time, which is one of the Earlier, Michael j. water.
